Congratulations to the fifteen (15) long distance hikers who have completed the arduous 26 miles Gin's hike on 5/4/2013 to start the fund raising for American Lung Association in Memory of Gin Goon.
We like to thank BoBo and Daniel for bringing the precious water and banana at the re-fill station at Route 106 for the hikers.
Special honors are given to Cherry Lau, Kevin Li and Tang Jian for their success on the first attempt of the Gin's hike and Wade Zhang Who has completed the difficult course without much training during the busy tax season. The rest of the hikers Chen Feng, Chen Ta-Hoa, Chung Leung, George Li, H Y Lee, Helen Huang, Ivy Shi, Leo Sun, Sandy Lau, Seita Tomaoka and Tony Shu have all beaten their own expectations.
Being the forerunner for this fund raising event for American Lung Association (ALA) in Memory of CMCNY's founder Gin Goon, the long distance hikers have started training since February.
In supporting their effort, the Board of CMCNY will be donating $300 to ALA. We hope this small contribution will initiate much more donation from you to the ALA. All the donation will be collected during the month of May and sent as a pool to ALA in honor of Gin Goon. Your donation will best be made by Check to "American Lung Association" and the donation is tax deductable. You can drop off your check to any trip leader on your next hike or mail it to CMCNY, PO Box 295, NY, NY 10163.
Thank you in advance for your generous contribution.
